Re: nasin pona

'toki tawa jan pali mute'? Yes. 'mama unpa' I don't think 'unpa' is meant to carry the pejorative sense that its English version has and similarly with its compounds. I know. But 'jan pakala' or similar makes even less sense. So I used a common IE calque. mi pakala. 'jan jaki' would be much better....

Re: kala suwi

don't need 'pi' in 'kama suli ala' but 'kama ala suli' is clearer: 'kama pi suli ala' definitely say "become unbig" But there is 'kama pi su w i ala': ona li kama suli la ona li kama pi suwi ala. = when it grows up, it becomes not-cute. In the last sentence I would have used 'ante' rather...

Re: some more geography

Is it "Red Square" everywhere, i.e, the equivalent in the major languages, or do most languages use the transliteration? In Polish it is 'Plac Czerwony ' = " Red Square", too. Although we have almost the same word: krasny / krasna , meaning "bright red; colorful" or &q...

Re: some more geography

compare kulupu utala Kasaja vs kulupu utala Loje . Or maybe even kulupu utala Kasaja Amija - because "Army" was a persistent part of this proper name. It used to be shortened from "Raboče-Krestjanskaja Krasnaja Armija" to "Krasnaja Armija", but never to "Krasnaya&...
